MONTGOMERY, Ala (WIAT) — Officials at Alabama State University promoting COVID-19 prevention technology say they will speed up getting lives back to normal, especially for sporting events.
The university was the host for a sanitizing drone demonstration at its football stadium.
Alabama-based Varigard has created a spray that can kill the coronavirus on surfaces for up to 24 hours. “If somebody comes in with COVID on their hand and touches a rail or touches a seat, it gets an immediate kill to the COVID,” Mike Dow with Varigard said. “It traps it and somebody else can’t come tough it and get it.” By using drones to apply the spray, an entire stadium can be sanitized before fans arrive and help ensure they don’t pass the virus along to others through surface contact.
